    A very fun book to read

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
    I have often thought, dreamed about living in Paris and was able to live the dream through the author.
    I admire her courage I taking on this daring move.

    I loved it!!!!

    I find Suzy smart, funny, and very insightful. Have read many of her shopping guides, but this book gives a wonderful portrait of everyday life in Paris, life as a widow, and as La Mere d'un petit chien. I eagerly await Merci Madame, her next memoire.

    Suzy Made it to the Best Seller List with this Exciting Book

    Read this one and weep-the joys of a new home in Paris (Super High) to burying a husband at 50 (Low). In the end you want more and more of this story.....when is the next one coming???? In the meantime, I enjoy the Born To Shop Series and keep up with this cutting edge lady. China is the new world and she is introducing us to it.
